How about not giving him the password for you wireless?

you can accomplish this by buying an extra wireless router to do this, another separate network that can just access the NAS.

Or

you can map him by MAC address using current router, block port 80 for that IP address.

You might want to block all except...........

I would suggest you need to find what port / protocol you need to connect to the NAS with then open that only

Get his MAC address, and try using DNSMASQ to assign him a DNS/Gateway that goes no where (e.g an internal IP that doesn't exist), or a gateway

Worth a try...I used DNSMASQ to assign a specific DNS for my kids, no reason why you could do the same

Thanks for the replies. I think i will go with the block all execpt approch first, and resort to keeping the nas on a sepperate unconnected network as a last resort
